When our faith
stands at the grave,
grieving for a stone that’s rolled away,
forgive us Lord.
When our faith
is short of understanding
though the truth is there for us to see,
forgive us Lord.
When our faith,beset by doubt, sees no further than an empty tomb, forgive us.
Bring to mind
the cry of Mary,‘I have seen the Lord!’
and grant us deepfaith to believe!
Honestly, some families will do anything to get out of coming back to school!!! ( Ha ha ha! Just joking of course!)
Two St Emilie’s families are currently stranded up in Exmouth and this is a photo of what it looked like outside one of their holiday homes last night!!
As I wrote in an email – while we will of course miss them, we wish them all a very safe return!
Life always has many twists and turns for us doesn’t it and when it comes to the weather – we just have no control of it at all! 🙂
Each year students from Year Four classes receive the Sacrament of the Eucharist. This is yet another opportunity for students and families to deepen their relationship with Jesus and with one another, as they further explore what it means to be a ‘Christ follower’ and a bearer of the Good News.
First Holy Communion Family Workshops will be held in the School Hall at two choices of session time – 5pm and 7pm on Wednesday 18th June.
If your child will be receiving the Sacrament this year, at east one parent and your child is expected to attend one of these sessions.
If you have any questions regarding the above please contact Mrs Anne Aquino via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you so much for supporting our P&F HOT CROSS BUN DRIVE for 2014 – a fabulous effort with lots of volunteers and many families ordering hot cross buns – a fabulous community effort once again! We hope you all had a wonderful Easter and enjoyed those yummy hot cross buns!
Mr Paul Davis, St Emilie’s PE teacher has topped off another great season for the Mt Lawley Hawks by winning the 2013/14 WADCCI Bowling Average. Paul took 41 wickets at an average of 12.83, he was also selected in the WADCCI Team of the Year.
Congratulations Paul – we are very proud of you!
We hope you all enjoyed a very happy Easter and welcome back to Term Two!
Students and staff commence on Monday 28th April.
We hope you have all managed to spend some quality time together over the school holidays. Staff are well rested and very much looking forward to getting back into the swing of things for Term Two! Looking forward to seeing you soon!
Thank you so much to all our families for your wonderful support of our first fundraiser for the year – the whole school walkathon! Children walked with their buddies for half the way, then once the littlies had finished, the big kids ‘got their power walk on’ and finished off their 20 laps. While we certainly raised a fabulous amount, the day itself was a time to get outdoors, chat with our buddies and build relationships, be part of a whole school community effort and to get physical! A special thank you to mums and dads who came along to assist at checkpoints and to cheer us all on – it was really great to have you all there! (One of the things we are going to purchase with our money this year is a couple of giant chess sets for outdoor play! We are also going to buy some brand new pennant flags for each of our new Houses! YAY!!)
